Mayo Clinic doctors are continually trying to improve the surgical process and results of knee replacement. Mayo researchers have studied topics such as problems that can affect the stability of the artificial joint, factors that can increase the risk of joint infection and complications encountered during revision surgeries.
In addition, some orthopedic surgeons at Mayo Clinic are involved in artificial knee joint design in the laboratory for motion analysis, where they evaluate longer lasting materials and designs to improve care and outcomes.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on knee replacement on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
